Editor’s Note: In the project management class (OMIS 352), students were challenged to create a project that makes a meaningful impact in the community. Here’s the second in a four part guest post series on why a team of 4 OMIS students feel so strongly about their project, the Dreamworks Scholarship campaign.
My name is Jake Eggert and I am a junior at the College of Business here at Northern Illinois University. I am a member of the NIU Triathlon Team and participate in Student Accountancy Society. I was very happy when my group and I decided to establish a scholarship as our community impact project for our project management class.
During my time at NIU, I have made many friends and met many great people. However, many of them I would never have had the opportunity to meet without the help of a scholarship so that I can attend school. I am invested into creating a scholarship because I want to provide an opportunity for another student like myself, to experience college and meet many great people.
Check out the Dreamworks web page here and if you feel strongly about this too, please help spread the word: http://www.youcaring.com/tuition-fundraiser/dreamworks-scholarship/91552
